Image Details:

Bursa is 3 million populated city located in north-western Turkey so its almost impossible to see meteors or comet(s). I went 100km (60mi) out eastward for excluding light pollution. Interestingly I had seen only one or two meteors with naked eyes, but when checked frames I have seen that there were 4 to 6 meteors on single frame. The reddish spot at the center of the image is Mars, and Delta Aquariids meteors' traces are from upper right corner toward bottom.
